I love Joan Mitchell‘s expressionist paintings. Mitchell was one of the few female painters to break into the male dominated abstract art world during the 1950s. She was greatly inspired by landscapes which is evident in her use of color. When I was browsing the Spring 2010 collections, a lot of the prints and colors reminded me of Mitchell’s work.
I included the bottom picture because I loved this spread in the January Issue of Vogue. See more pictures here. But also because the colors totally reminded me of the Mitchell at the top of this post. Art inspiring photography perhaps?
